We (senior couple from Norway) had Discovery as our base camp for 3 weeks in April, while making shorter trips to other destinations and lodges in the Territory. Excellent solution, having our own safe and guarded rondavel while travelling around with light luggage only. Simple, but very sufficient facilities, including outside shower and washing, and charming chairs around the fireplace... More

Discovery is a lovely stop-over just outside of Maun - clean,wonderful atmosphere,extremely helpful owners and really a beautiful setting. The rooms are well set out and clean with REALLY hot water...we stayed in the family unit that was a bit small but sufficient with a bunk bed for the kids. The B&B has a fire pit where one can relax... More

We had to find accomodation in Maun after our tent needed some welding reparation works and we couldn't make it back to Savuti the same day to continue our itinerary. The owner welcomed us warmly and showed us around. The breakfast is nice and if you want a drink, just take it from the fridge and note it down. The... More

We really enjoyed our weekend stay at Discovery. Marija is a very friendly hostess and helpful in recommending and providing directions to facilities, restaurants and activities. It is situated within walking distance from the delta. Breakfast was very simple and basic, and the rooms were clean and serviced daily. If you’re lucky you’ll see the resident Lesser Bushbaby! Very good... More

We stayed here for one night in early December, prior to our ten night safari. It allowed us time to relax and recover from an overnight flight in a peaceful setting. We could easily have spent an extra day enjoying the sounds and birdwatching in the garden. The accommodation in an ensuite rondavel, was basic but clean. The owners and... More

We stayed here exactly three years ago. Two of our children, aged 6 and 9 at the time fell terribly ill with gastroenteritis and I spent New Years Eve 2011 looking after them. The managers, Rene and Marije, were very supportive and made us feel safe in this vulnerable situation. The cottages were simple, but clean and comfortable, just like... More

Returning guest! The ideal base to explore "The Delta". The hosts are very cordial and helpful, Thank s for that. Assisted in organizing trips into the delta. The chalets are rustic, but very cosy. Even in the December heat, the fan provided the necessary cooling. I cannot confirm Anna M's review at all! Who prefers to stay in the car... More

Maun is a busy place, at certain times of the year good accommodation is hard to find. We were a group of 6 traveling through Botswana - Gaborone to Ghanzi (Ghanzi Trailblazers) to see the bushmen hunting and dancing, then to Maun....where our preferred accommodation was fully booked on the dates we required. The Old Bridge Backpackers recommended Discovery B... More

Okavango Delta is rather expensive, and we booked Discovery B&B under value for money considerations. And this excactly is it. Rather basic, but really ok, you just need to know what to expect. The owner Marie is very helpful, with some rustic charme. I would recommend to have a car available, we've been there without and felt a little bit... More
